Los Angeles, CA, Nov. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Los Angeles Comic Con, the premier destination for comics, gaming, sci-fi, anime, and pop culture enthusiasts, is thrilled to announce an important new collaboration with Rogue Matter (RM), the creative studio and content powerhouse. Together, RM and L.A. Comic Con will reshape the fan experience landscape by launching an innovative content network and creator community, which will kick off at the 2023 convention with its first Creative Portfolio Review and expand throughout 2024.
“When we met the team from Rogue Matter, we were very impressed by their vision for a 24/7/365 content network fueled by ‘rogue’ nerd creators,” said Chris DeMoulin, CEO/GM of Comikaze Entertainment, inc., L.A Comic Con’s parent. “When Rogue Matter asked us if we could help expand that concept with our artist and creator relationships, we said, ‘We’re in!’”
This partnership unites the iconic L.A. Comic Con, renowned for its world-class, three-day pop culture convention, and Rogue Matter’s expertise in producing, distributing, and monetizing immersive content across various mediums, including books, comics, podcasts, video, film, television, and games.
“The creator network is an extremely exciting part of a process that extends L.A. Comic Con’s footprint from an annual event into a dynamic year-round program,” said Michael Dolce, Rogue Matter’s Chief Creative Officer.
“This evolution is fueled by the Con’s unique role in the heart of L.A. fan culture and Rogue Matter’s commitment to elevating storytelling in art, culture, and entertainment,” said Trent Olsen, Editor in Chief, Rogue Matter.
Empowering Disruptive Creators at L.A. Comic Con
An integral part of this collaboration is pursuing the next generation of disruptors. Rogue Matter and L.A. Comic Con aim to identify and nurture groundbreaking creators, offering them various opportunities to bring their work to life across all the media in which Rogue Matter is a leading producer. The partnership opens the door for talent already associated with the Con’s celebrated Artists Alley, providing them with publishing, access, and support through Rogue Matter.
Kicking off this year as part of an ongoing effort, Rogue Matter offers invited L.A. Comic Con artists the chance to participate in a Creative Portfolio Review. RM’s top creative minds and producers will seek to provide guidance, elevate projects to the next level, and potentially lead to meaningful partnerships. At 4 pm on Sunday, Dec. 3, L.A. Comic Con and Rogue Matter will take to the Main Stage to announce the one to three projects that have been selected to be optioned and developed by Rogue Matter in the next 12 months in the selected medium.
